Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama leaves for Paris this weekend to attend the One Planet Summit.

This was confirmed by permanent secretary Yogesh Karan.

A release from the Prime Minister’s office said that on December 12, the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron, the president of the World Bank Group, Jim Yong Kim, and the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, would address the ecological emergency for our planet by calling together in Paris international leaders and committed citizens from around the world.

“Two years to the day after the historic Paris Agreement, it is time for concrete action,” the release said.

The three aims of the One Planet Summit are:

1. Take tangible and collective action.

There are solutions, let’s roll them out globally and locally as swiftly as possible.

2. Innovate.

Let’s be creative and resourceful in adapting our systems to the inevitable changes and step up our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

3. Support one another.

We are all affected by climate change, but some of us are more vulnerable than others. Let’s work together for the good of all and increase our support even more to the countries and peoples who need it most.

How can we do this? By putting forward new and tangible actions and ideas (ClimActs) that involve all public and private stakeholders.
